I am so excited to be going on a sewing vacation. Not a vacation from sewing, but a vacation to sew. I have wanted to do something like this for a lot of years, but this is the first time I have the chance. The main reason this is possible is my husband’s sister is helping look after my kids while I’m away. I thought a quilt would be an appropriate thank-you gift.
I had two sets of fat quarters that I was considering. I decided to let my kids help decide. Interestingly, all of my kids said “Group A would match her house better, but I think she’ll like group B better.” They all voted for B, so that’s what I used. It doesn’t particularly match her house, but I love the colours and I think she will too.
It is just random squares, and I actually managed to be random – it is quite difficult for me to do something without trying to arrange patterns. I took the easy way out and did straight-line quilting with a walking foot.
I hope she likes it. It is made with a lot of thanks and love.
